MATCH REPORT (BOYS) – R16 vs DANDENONG STINGRAYS

EASTERN RANGES – 5.16.46

DANDENONG STINGRAYS – 6.5.41


Our Round 16 clash with the Dandenong Stingrays saw us head to Shepley Oval as we looked to cement our place at the top of the NAB League Ladder. 

It was a low scoring affair with our boys starting very slowly and playing into the Stingrays’ hands, with our poor forward entries and inaccurate kicking keeping us from impacting the scoreboard how we would’ve desired.

It was a tight contest all game, but it was our captain James Ross who moved forward and kicked two crucial goals in the 3rd  which gave us the spark and momentum we needed.

A goal apiece and a heart stopping final term saw each contest met with high intensity, but it was our boys who held the five point lead at the final siren.

After the victory, we still sit a game clear in top spot with the Oakleigh Chargers and Gippsland Power right behind us.

Best: James Ross, Mitch Mellis, Joel Nathan, Todd Garner, Billy McCormack & Tyler Sonsie

Our next match is not until the 17th of August where we head to Werribee to take on the Calder Cannons in the final game of the home and away season.
